Tyler Oakley is what Scooby from "Storytelling" dreamed of becoming.
Dec 11, 2015 tiktok commented on The Morning News: Bill Bryant on the Minimum Wage, Possible Hate Crime Against an Uber Driver, More Bauhaus Closures.
Bauhaus imploding after opening multiple new stores and losing their original location doesn't strike me as "unexpected" for a small profit-margin business in a saturated marketplace.

Still, sad.

It took forever to get rid of the "....on acid!" and "...from hell" things. "On steroids" still has a ways to go.

I was reading this and thinking, yeah, of course...how much seems fair? Dollar a day? Yep.

I assumed that the "bus butt" maneuver was due to not having enough room to pull in to the bus stop and have the long back end of the bus "catch up" with the front.

But yes, always yield to transit. The needs of the many, etc.

Well, if this turns into an actual problem, I'm sure we'll look into it.

Frankly as long as it's children of the owner of the gun getting killed, I'm just going to shrug.
Oct 15, 2015 tiktok commented on Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs Never Shuts Up and Becomes a Real Movie.
My guess is that Jobs' widow isn't in the movie because she doesn't want to be, and she has all of Steve Jobs' fortune to give anyone pause about writing her into a movie she did not want to be made.
Oct 14, 2015 tiktok commented on Protest Planned for Canadian Band Viet Cong’s Oct. 16 Show at Neumos.
White Americans naming their band "Dead Kennedys" is one thing.

White Americans naming their band after the army that kicked our asses a few decades ago, and then established the legitimate government in a country with which we now have diplomatic relations, is another. Maybe like a German band calling themselves "G.I. Joe" or "Allied Liberators of Europe".
Oct 11, 2015 tiktok commented on Greatest Friday News Dump Ever: WSDOT Is Suing Seattle Tunnel Partners.
@11: Currently the viaduct is alleviating traffic on I-5.

Seattle traffic is, on the whole, a mess.

The tunnel has *less* capacity than the current viaduct. And it'll cost at least $5 per use.

The only "alleviation" of traffic on I-5 that the tunnel will do is relative to the traffic that's forced off the viaduct once the project reaches the point where we have to tear it down, and the months (probably years) until the tunnel actually opens.
